Lathan Ransom spoke with Eleven Warriors’ Dan Hope about the emergence of linebacker Tommy Eichenberg. He had some kind words to say about his teammate.

Ransom usually plays safety for Ohio State. Ransom is currently fourth on the team in total tackles (21), while Eichenberg leads the team with 50 so far. Eichenberg also has 2.5 sacks and 1 pass deflection.

Eichenberg has become a monster at linebacker for Ohio State. Ransom went as far to call him the best linebacker in the country in a recent interview.

“Tommy’s a dog. He’s the best linebacker in the country to me. He jumps out on the film every time. He’ll be flying around and not afraid of anyone. You’ll feel him. Tommy will make you feel him for sure.”

It looks like Eichenberg is thriving in Jim Knowles’ defense. He had a season-high 14 total tackles against Wisconsin. He is on pace for some great tackling numbers when the season is over.
